I did’t have high expectations tonight due to the full moon, but I set up my camera to do timelapse. To my surprise there was a great ouburst just minutes after I set up the camera, and I missed all of it because I opted to go indoors and let the camera do its job!

This image is at 17:56 local time.

Luckily I am able to post a nice photo and a timelapse.

What an awesome sight this would have been with no moon! Being as far south as 60 degrees north I am quite grateful, though.
